G'Day. I hope all the mothers out there were looked after on Sunday.
One of the best things about fishing is that you get to spend time with your mates.
Over the weekend Josh Wilson spent time with his chippie mate "Slim" Jennings.
Yours truly spent time with astronaut mate "The Greek transvestite".
And Mick Donald spent time with his dad, Dave.
Josh and Slim spent the day out on Lake Mac on Saturday, with mixed success.
Like most blokes let off the leash for a day, the lads figured they may as well make the most of it, so after setting the crab nets (witches' hats) they lured up a couple of flathead and hit the early opener for some breakfast.
After six hours, seven flathead and four bream (caught on a variety of hard and soft lures), nine tailor (trolled up on chrome lures) and four blue swimmers, they called it a day.
Mick and Dave were a bit out of luck, though. In memory of mother and wife Deirdre, father and son have been fishing every Mother's Day for the last four years. Unfortunately the weather gods conspired against them this year, with a brisk westerly blowing across the lake and making things uncomfortable.
After anchoring up at Dave's favourite spot and getting a burley trail going, father and son spent a couple of hours chatting and pulling in the odd fish on lightly weighted fresh mullet strips and pilchard fillets.
Amongst the fish Mick and Dave caught were a couple of nearly kilo-sized silver trevally.
Unfortunately, the cold breeze made life too uncomfortable so the duo adjourned to a warm bar.
